Implicit Bias is...
…The tendency to automatically associate people (
e.g., Construction Workers, African Americans, or Women

Lugo Elementary PBIS: Implicit Bias & Discipline Referrals
“If we want to maintain the trust of parents and communities in our schools, we must start by treating our children with respect and human dignity…we also have to take a hard look at ourselves, our history, and the implicit biases that we all carry. The ugly truth – the harsh reality – is that still today, some children are far more likely to face harsh discipline than others, simply because of their zip code or the color of their skin.”
Chimamanda Adichie- TED TALK 2009
